    Only one I know of is GLR and its sisters - love this type of dnb, anyone know any other labels that do this kind of stuff?

    Fokuz is the only one I can think of. Cadence still put out the atmospheric sound that GLR, 720 etc used to do but its more 'space' themed than soul

    Modern Urban Jazz comes to mind, ran by Justice (& Metro?)

    Has some atmospheric funk from back in the day, nowadays its more minimal-ish with apparent funk and jazz influences

    The DiamondEye album on there is really good

    Soul Deep, V recordings, Soul:R. Pretty much all deep or liquid labels have a few heavily influenced jazz/funk/soul tunes.
    Special mentions to Krust and Alex Reece.

    Can't believe I have never heard that Calibre track before.

    7th Avenue is bang on as well

    Like Jazz Club as well but, just a bit minimal on the drop
